Had my Daewoo Nubira estate for 4 ½ years now and have been happy with it until recently.
Starting to find a lot of niggly things going wrong with it and parts becoming hard to come by.
Problems suffered include:
• Freezing handbrake in winter. This started during the first year and is apparently a common fault with Daewoos. Now during the extremely cold weather I leave it in gear with no handbrake on….it’s ok it’s parked in my driveway !
• Suspension problems. Had to replace nearside suspension and took two months for AA services to get the parts. Been told this is a recent problem and should go away now that GM have bought them.
• Rust. Have had three inspections against the anti- rust warranty but had no response from Daewoo (now GM Daewoo). All they say is it must be lost and have to go through the same procedure again to get a new one done. Now that GM have taken them over they say the nearest inspection station is in Rotherham or Rochdale, But I live in Leeds so it’s a bit far to trek !
• Now that the cold weathers here the car is suffering condensation inside the car. So much so that I have to scrape the inside windscreen as much as the outside windscreen on a frosty day.
Apart from these main problems which seem to be common to Daewoos (they never tell you about these in the brochures) I have been reasonably happy with it.
The specs good for the price and runs well, never had a breakdown yet (but I’m waiting). I was going to hold it for the long term but I am beginning to think of a change next Spring (when the frosts not around !).
Would like to see how GM’s takeover is going to affect the customer services but fear I will have changed by then.
